the election between building an economy from the middle class out through investments in things like educction and manufacturing and reducing the deficit, or that top-down approach mitt romney's for. the target was the undecided voter tuning in in the suburbs of denver, sitting on the couch with their family to the campaign for the first time. i think he really reached those voters tonight. neil: all right, ben, you know the president better than i do. he appeared to a lot of people here to have been flustered or annoyed even by some of the attack lines of mitt romney whether he thought romney was selling lies or half truths, whatever. it get under his skin. it feeds a narrative, and maybe you can address this, that the president has a thin skin, and if you get under it, you got a cornucopia. what do you say? >> i don't think that's the case at all, neil. i think that the president is as cool as they come. he certainly was in the debate stage tonight speaking directly to the american people, and not interested in any punches from his opponent, but laying out the choice in the el

the negative. >> we did see good solid 18,000 jobs in the sector. that is where the economy is being structured these days. 10,000 jobs in construction. manufacturing, 4000 jobs. melissa: we were looking at 113, does that make that same life? i just want to remind everyone that is not a good number. >> finding the list that the government number includes state and local layoffs. i don't think that adp number includes that. when you look at those two numbers since january, you will see a defeat for 172,000 jobs a month where it is about 150,000. it has to be above 200,000 to keep up with population growth. again, 8.2% we are looking at coming in for friday. lori: full employment around 4%? nobody talks about that anymore. >> we just talk about the jobless rate. lori: the temperature is going down, find your heating costs going way up? the impact the winter will have on the economy. melissa: take a look at metals had with those who break. gold trading up. copper, basically what. we will be right back. ♪ you see us, at the start of the day. on the company phone list that's a few names

if you aren't also amazed by this. they think that mitt romney is better for our economy. nine of 17 of these guys do that. only three have knopick. still, i find it a telling one. especially when you recall it was the obama administration that brought about hundreds of economists supported them. the very best among them, clearly not being stimulated. the bloom is off the obama rose. by a ratio of three to one, their hope is for change. this is hardly an endorsement from mitt romney is one of the economist put it. obama does not understand business and rummy does not understand how to govern. so pick your poison. the fact that most of the economists prefer mitt romney's poison speaks volumes. it speaks volumes about how economist have had it with mitt romney's end obama's poison. romney might be more likely to get congress to do something, whereas obama has shown that he cannot. allen sinai says that romney is more likely to cut the growth of government itself. well, hope springs eternal, i guess, but these are among the finest economic minds of the country, many of them supportin

being productive for our economy. let these achieving students, send them the message that if you achieve you will be rewarded. the idea we're going to get any of this taxpayer money back is kind of a mirage. taxpayers never get any money back. it will move on to the next boondoggle. i think it's a good idea. >> half of property taxes go to schools to be fair. tracy, the kids issue, you can get them out of your house two years earlier. what do you make about that? >> you know what, the money issue to me is separate from the academic development issue. i don't think these kids should be rushed through school. i do think there's a reason they need these years to develop as people. when you do look at the dollars and cents, there are a lot of people that live in towns that don't even have kids in the school system. close to 50% of their taxes are going to the schools that are not spending the money properly. if you can get a kid that can take advantage of every dollar given to them, they can get through the system and take advantage, why not? >> sally cohen, at the same time taxpayer

debate. romney was on his a game. he ticket write to him, kept the issue about jobs in the economy which is what is critical here. he didn't for the first 45 minutes let up. he was very articulate. he looked presidential. half a billion dollars in negative advertising. what the mistakes, he looked presidential, and it's hard for anybody to believe he is is evil bogyman. i think it's -- i think to believe. lou: he just took that half a billion dollars and set it on fire. i mean, there is nothing left but the image of a strong, positive, absolutely effective communicator. the opposite of everything all that money had been spent. >> even though incumbent presidents don't do well, this performance was very, very bad for the president. i compare the the campaign i ran with ronald reagan had an off night, he was ten points ahead and basically went on to win by 18. he had a very strong second debate. lou: every candidate should try to emulate? >> my sense is this president came under attack on both his performance, his own performance , his policies, and the good thing is once again romne
